Man United v Man City match report

Taking a look at line-ups, goals, assists, clean sheets and anything else we could highlight that could have implications for FPL managers. We cover the Man United v Man City match report. Covering eye test and key moments through-out the match with the help of the Fantasy Football Scout members area.

Overviewing the Man United v Man City match report can be helpful in identifying key moments in the match. This can then give FPL managers a good insight into which players and teams looked good, key injuries, fitness and even more to help us make decisions in FPL.

Man United line-up

Marcus Rashford (£7m) starts the match. The midfielder will be looking to extend his fantastic run of form. Rashford has netted in every one of his last six matches on the bounce. Fantasy football favourite and defender Luke Shaw (£5.1m) also starts the match.

Man City line-up

Defender Aymeric Laporte (£5.7m) drops to the bench. Many within the Fantasy Premier League community will be hoping for big returns from Erling Haaland (£12.2m). The striker has been in relentless form this season but drew up a blank in his previous match against Chelsea.

Key moments – first half

  • The first half gets underway.
  • It has been a good start by both sides in the first 10 minutes.
  • CHANCE! Christian Eriksen (£6.3m) slides the ball into fellow midfielder Bruno Fernandes (£9.8m) who has a great opportunity in the Man City box but he drags his shot wide.
  • Man City are becoming increasingly dangerous.
  • There has been a lack of clear cut chances in the game so far.
  • Play has been stopped whilst Man United defender Tyrell Malacia (£4.2m) receives treatment.
  • CHANCE! Marcus Rashford looked set to place the ball into an open net as Man City goalkeeper Ederson (£5.4m) is caught in no mans land outside of his box. However, the Man City defence clear the danger.
  • CHANCE! Marcus Rashford makes a darting run to connect with Christian Eriksen’s pass but Ederson times his run to ball right this time.
  • The whistle blows for half-time.

Key moments – second half

  • The second half is underway.
  • There has been a significant change at half time as Man United striker Anthony Martial (£6.6m) is replaced for midfielder Antony (£7.4m).
  • Man City’s Jack Grealish (£6.8m) replaces fellow midfielder Phil Foden.
  • GOAL! Man City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne (£12.5m) lofts the ball into the box and Jack Grealish heads it into the back of the net! Its 1-0 to Man City.
  • Christian Eriksen picks up a yellow card for his challenge.
  • GOAL! Man United midfielder Bruno Fernandes (£9.8m) thunders a shot from the edge of the box which glides past Ederson! It’s 1-1!
  • GOAL! What a turnaround by Man United! Marcus Rashford finds himself in space inside the box and places the ball into the middle of the net! It’s 2-1 to Man United.
  • The whistle blows for full time and Man United win their derby 2-1!
